    Why is it that any advance on technology is something to be scared of?
    It's simply the next evolution of "follow me" technology that's been around for a few years. I am sure that many Phantom users would like to have this ability.

    It's going to be incorporated into the Inspire 1. I'm pretty sure I'll be upgrading soon. Couldn't agree with you more. Sure, people will always find a bad use for technological advancements, but with a battery life of 10-20 minutes, you won't be "stalking" someone for very long with this quad. There's nothing to be afraid of here.

    I should add, stories of cool technology (that's been around for years) doesn't sell papers. It's not sexy enough, it doesn't scare enough people. The media has to scare people and generate anger, just like in Fergison, to stay in business.

    ??? Do you want to quote a source on that?
    I've read everything I can about the Inspire and your comment is the first hint of this I've seen.

    I can't recall but I'm 100% sure I saw this. It might have been said I. One of the numerous sneak preview reviews.
